Wet n Wild FastDry Nail Color in Hannah Pinktana

Wet n Wild Hannah Pinktana 2 coats (over 1 coat of essence No More Drama)

This is my Monday manicure, and I super super super love it! Wet n Wild Hannah Pinktana is a beautiful multi-color micro shimmer in a soft pinkish purple base. These sparkles look almost like holographic in real life, very very pretty. I layered it over 1 thin coat of essence No More Drama - a pastel lavender shade as Hannah Pinktana is pretty sheer by its own.  

essence - 27 No More Drama 1 coat

Wet n Wild Hannah Pinktana 2 coats (over 1 coat of essence No More Drama)

The consistency of  Wet n Wild Hannah Pinktana was ok, a bit more on the thin end. And it's quite easy to work with, no streaking and dries fairly quickly. When indoor, silver micro-shimmers seem to dominate more (though you can still see other shimmering colors), but under the sunlight, oh my goodness, those shimmers shift like rainbow, so so so pretty!!!

What's on your nail today? Have you ever tried any polishes from Wet n Wild FastDry line? What's your favorite?

L'Oreal Iced Latte Infallible Eye Shadow (Swatches and Review)

L'Oreal Infallible Eye Shadow 888 Iced Latte

L'Oreal infallible eye shadows were released quite a long time (last year), and I have been passing these as I thought they might not live up to all the hypes. Couple weeks ago I did manage to pick up a couple at ULTA during their sale event (BOGO 1/2 Off + $5 Off with $10 Purchase). After playing around with these eye shadows, I was quite impressed with the color payoff as well as the lasting power.
 L'Oreal Infallible Eye Shadow 888 Iced Latte

Iced Latte is a gorgeous champagne beige shade with a shimmering metallic finish. It is great for all over lids, inner corners, and center of the lids. But I love using this just for my inner corners for highlight. It instantly brighten up the eyes. Not so great for brow bones highlight as it has that shimmering metallic finish.

The jar is made out of plastic but it doesn't look cheap. I just wish there's plastic seal wrapped around so no one will dip their germy fingers at the stores trying to test out the colors... 

L'Oreal Infallible Eye Shadow 888 Iced Latte

When opened, there's a plastic press thing that you can use to compact and keep the eye shadow in place as the texture of the eye shadow is more like loose pigments, but in a compact form. They will loosen the more you use it so it is important to keep the "do not discard" plastic thing in the jar in the event you might need to re-press the eye shadow.

For application, I have tried using both brushes and fingers to apply. And I found it best to use finger to dab on the desired eye area first (so there's less fall out) and then blend away with brush. It has a silky creamy like texture with great pigmentation so a little goes a long way. The color payoff is great even without the use of eyeshadow primer. And it lasts pretty much the whole day! For $7~8 on a single drugstore eye shadow I think it's pretty pricey. So shop around, and I'm sure you'll find some good deals. I got mine for $3.22 each jar (after BOGO 1/2 off and coupons) I thought it's a awesome deal^^

Do you own any L'Oreal Infallible Eye Shadows? What shades have you tried? and What's your favorites?

Wet n Wild Blue Had Me At Hello Eyeshadow Palette and EOTD

Wet n Wild Blue Had Me At Hello Eyeshadow Palette
(Click image to view larger)

Last week during CVS's Wet n Wild BOGO FREE sale, I was going to pick up both Petal Pusher and Comfort Zone eyeshadow palettes. But the only 2 Comfort Zone left on the display were all shattered so I told myself, ok, I already have enough neutrals, maybe I should try some "colors" so I grabbed this along with Petal Pusher to the cashier. (for review/swatches/eye makeup look on Petal Pusher, click here)

Urban Decay Naked2 Palette (Swatches and Review)

I don't know why I've never post anything about my beloved Naked2 palette. I got it from Sephora in April this year during their 15% off sale event (my haul here) and have been using it mostly on a everyday basis! I love this palette and it's been my go-to everyday neutral palette since then. So here we go...
